From February 2010 there has been a new Code of Practice for the installation of solid fuel heating in canal boats (BS8511:2010). There are strict guidelines on the type of flues and chimneys to be used as well as distance to combustibles and heat shields. Our flue systems and heat shields meet all these new requirements.
We supply twin-walled insulated deck collars and chimneys to meet the new regulations.
Single Walled Flue System
Single wall vitreous enamel pipe from the stove to the underside of the deck collar.
With this option you may need to make provision for heat shields to protect internal panelling close to the stove pipe.
straight flue system £531 (incl VAT)
system with two additional bends £591 (incl VAT)
Twin Wall Flue System
Twin-walled flue from the top of the stove through the deck collar to the chimney.
system with two additional bends
straight flue system £639 (incl VAT)
flue system with 2 additional bends £793 (incl VAT)
It is imperative that installation and maintenance guidelines are followed for all appliances. Apart from the obvious fire hazards there is a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning (as there is with diesel and gas).
Always fit smoke and carbon monoxide alarms
The Short Penguin is also a very popular with canal boat users. It is a simply styled really robost and efficient little stove for those who do not need the oven facility of the Standard Penguin
